High School Challenge

The Warrior Run is excited to offer this unique initiative for your school. This is a great opportunity to help students learn and develop healthy habits while supporting your school! The goal of the program is to encourage and teach students 13-18 years old to improve their physical and mental fitness and give back to the community by volunteering and fundraising for their school.


All students registered in the High School Challenge, should train for and participate in the Warrior Run 5K or 1 mile walk on Saturday, September 30, 2017. Participants can train individually, however, group-training sessions are encouraged.


Much like training for an athletic event makes your body stronger, volunteering makes your neighborhood a stronger, healthier community. Plus helping others is a great feel good opportunity! Volunteer hours must be in conjuction with the Warrior Run.


Students can use a number of fundraising methods to raise money for their school. All funds will go directly to the school. The money raised will be used to create mental health programs.


The score of each school participating in the challenge will be calculated by a weighted scale.

50% of the score will be based on student participation (as a percentage of total enrollment).

25% of the score will be based on community service (number of service hours compared to other schools based on participants). Community service hours can be accumulated either by volunteering at the race or in any other project of your choice in conjunction with the race.

25% of the score will be based on fundraising (money raised compared to other schools based on participants).

The winning school will receive a traveling trophy, a $1,500 scholarship, and a Skyline Chili cheese coney party.

The deadline to register your school is Friday, September 15. If you are interested in learning more or would like to schedule a visit to your school, please email info@1n5.org to arrange a meeting with a race representative.
